This bill ends automatic voter registration through Oregon Motor Voter. Reestablishes process of registration at any office of Department of Transportation where licenses or renewal applications are distributed or received that existed prior to enactment of Oregon Motor Voter.
The bill removes electronic reporting to the Secretary of State of every name, age, signature, residence and citizenship information, and the process for transferring it to county clerks. Instead, DMV offices will make voter registration cards available and deliver them to the county clerk in a timely manner.
The department shall develop a driver license issuance or renewal and voter registration application procedure and a state identification card issuance and voter registration application procedure that allows an applicant to register to vote, which complies with the National Voter Registration Act of 1993. Signatures may only be used for voter registration purposes.
Driver’s license applications and renewals will contain an option to register to vote while applying or renewing a license, but they will not be automatically registered without their signature.
Automatic voter registration increases the number of unused ballots that can be fraudulently harvested.
(Same as HB 2233)
